So went to GP today to get some holes put in toenail to get rid of the throbbing pain that's slowly building... His first comment was oh it happened Saturday - discarding the information that its been getting progressively worse over the last few days, well the blood has dried nothing I can do.
To which I responded its getting worse so obviously its still releasing blood or something. well, the thing is he responded if I did do it there is a high chance of hitting the nail bed which would be much more painful.
To which I said well im hurting at the moment so I don't mind if it hurts then releases the fluid.
Oh well, I have to say I think the risk outways the reward plus we would need to talk about infection, a foot is a very dirty thing and once you get a hole there your just asking for an infection in your toe... Mmm yes I take your point that's why I will keep it clean and infection didn't happen last time.
I haven't done the procedure before and would be uncomfortable doing it I don't think it is necessary... (I thought ah now this is the real reason). Right well if you haven't done it and aren't going to do it what do you suggest I do because I am in pain and want it released. Wait for Dr next door... wait for 2 minutes same Dr calls me back - I have spoken to the nurse and she says he hasn't performed that procedure either and won't. #mindblown.
Ok can you just give me a sterile swipe and an 18 gauge and I will do it myself? No sorry, that's against protocol. #fuckinghell.
Sucked it up - today is a running day so thought I will just do my short 4km course and see how it goes. Made it 20m tops with agonising shooting pains up my big toe - not interested in that, stopped. THIS FUCKING SUCKS. pissed off now because I want to run and I cant and incompetent ancient gp cant tells me it's worth enduring this pain rather than do 2 minutes of drilling with a needle - going to have to figure out a different way to get at it!
